I love the variegated colors and the designs that they create on the fabric. Each cloth you whip up results in a different design!

The Stitch Pattern

It’s worked in the front loops only, using the single and half double crochet stitches. The stitch pattern not only gives you a nice texture, but it also creates a soft fabric that’s great for washing dishes and other cleaning.

The Size

The finished size is 7 by 7 inches square. But there is not stitch multiple for this dishcloth, making it easy to crochet this to any size.

Always choose a dishcloth cotton when making dishcloths because this type of cotton is much more durable than other material. My personal preference is Bernat Handicrafter Cotton, but many other similar cottons work just as well.
